    Steel Diver Review

    Steel Diver

    If Steel Diver is an example of how the Big N is planning to treat first-party 3DS games in the months to come, the future is bleak indeed. Alright, I admit it: I was wrong on this one. In February when I came back... more

    WRC 2 Review

    WRC 2

    Other than the official WRC license all WRC 2 has going for it is a decent driving model. Everything else here feels dated and pales in comparison to numerous other games in the genre. Last year's WRC from Milestone was a so-so 6/10 effort, sorely lacking in... more

    Ridge Racer 3D Review

    Ridge Racer

    Ridge Racer 3D is, almost by default, one of the best titles in the 3DS launch line-up, but that doesn't forgive the many signs that Namco rather rushed this out of the door. It's Ridge Racer. That's not me trying to be clever by bringing up that... more

    Fast Five the Movie: Official Game Review

    Fast Five the Movie: Official Game

    Gameloft's Fast Five is good fun while it lasts and looks as good as any racer on the App Store, but a short campaign, some iffy drift mechanics and a somewhat erratic frame rate let the side down. Considering The Fast and the Furious is a movie series built around high... more

    Death Rally Review

    Death Rally

    Burnout CRASH! Review

    Burnout CRASH!

    Those still in a strop that it isn't the 'proper' Crash mode that we've seen in Burnout games previously are missing the point. It is what it is, and it is jolly good fun. Destruction is the name of the game in Burnout Crash. If the screen isn't a... more
